Prof. Mario T. Garcia publishes a new book: The Chicano Generation: Testimonios of the Movement (University of California Press, 2015)

Veteran Chicano civil rights scholar Mario T. Garcia provides a rare look inside the struggles of Mexican Americans in Los Angeles during the 1960's and 1970's. Based on in-depth interviews conducted with three key activists, this book illuminates the lives of Raul Ruiz, Gloria Arellanes, and Rosalio Munoz.

Weaving these activists' stories against a backdrop of Mexican American activism from the 1930's to the 1960's and the contemporary black power and black civil rights movements, Garcia gives readers the best representations of the Chicano generation in Los Angeles.
